The Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) announced Monday it has partnered with the first-ever senior living association in India and will assist the new group with developing a program to advance the nation’s quality of services.
A three-day conference held this past-December in New Delhi, India, spurred the creation of Association Senior Living India (ASLI), which includes top leaders from the country’s senior living companies and businesses.
ALFA was represented at the conference by ALFA Director Steven Vick, Co-Founder and CEO of Signature Senior Living. Vick will serve on the ASLI board, and ALFA will assist with the development of the new association, it said in a statement.
“The Indian senior living sector is still in its infancy and is expected to grow at a rapid pace in the coming years,” Vick said in the statement. “Senior living providers in India can learn a tremendous amount from the fits-and starts we had when senior living was in its infancy in the U.S.”
